Imagine the future of learning, as we move from “a digital desert to a digital ocean”.
What can Australia’s national broadband network do to enable this future?
Imagine individualised learning delivery adapted to a student’s learning style.
What about continual ‘invisible’ assessments, instead of point-in-time paper-based tests?
And what can be achieved when student interactions are measured in real-time? Especially when we know that the level of interactions is a good predictor of engagement and sustained learning?
Imagine a better world for future generations. It’s just around the corner.
But first things first. In Australia, we need the big pipes to transport the digital information that NBN Co is building.
Rolling out a broadband network is not about the infrastructure itself. Its about what it can do to impact our lives, even beyond what we can imagine today.
What else can you imagine this digital ocean can be used for to improve the quality of our lives?
